New to blog land
Hello! I am new to blog land but thought I would give it a whirl! Let's see....a little about me. I am a thirty something wife, mother and extreme crafter. I started my own business about a year ago and am working hard to make a go of it. What do I create? Well a little bit of everything. I started crocheting when I was about 11 years old. (my grandmother taught me) but I didn't really get into it until I met my mother in-law. As I sat and watched her, I was amazed at all of the lovely items she would make. She always gave me a hook, a ball of yarn and showed me how to do exactly what she was doing. I was instantly hooked! Afghans are my passion, I have crocheted over 200 of them! Wow! I can't believe it! After that, I started sewing, I am an amateur and have not been shown exactly how to do things, I kinda just wing it. Recently, I made a hand-sewing machine Elk applique for my husband (will post pics soon) This I took a class for and had the most amazing time, met a bunch of wonderful ladies and have a beautiful end project. After I started sewing, I moved on to soap making. It is so much fun and a bit addictive! At first I was giving all of my goodies away until I had a friend "Order" a few of my goodies...then it really took off! That is my enthusiasm, soo...began my business which leads me here to blogging. I wanted a way of chatting with friends to share all of the goodies that I am making, have currently made or am thinking of making. Please enjoy your visit here and let me know what you think. Hugs n squishes!
